Terrible, Terrible Quality Conversion to DVD

"This poor quality transfer to DVD looks as though it was converted from an old, full-screen VHS of the film. The chapter selection and menu screen have a home-job appearance. Stranger still, the picture on the box (of a green bug-eyed alien emerging from a door, bears no actual connection to the film.) In fact, except for the fact that it was sold on Amazon, you would think that this is a fly-by-night bootleg. Did anyone at Legacy Enterntainment (the DVD producer) actually care about the DVD they were releasing?"

"Astronauts, including Gary Collins, sight a UFO from the shuttle. NASA chief Darren McGavin tracks it on radar, but White House officials (Robert Vaughn & Joseph Campanella) want to keep it covered up until the election, because the president had previously ridiculed his opponent for reporting a UFO. McGavin is sent to investigate, but Collins and the other astronaut are kept in the dark - but they investigate unofficially. It turns into an action pic as the government tries to stop them, but meanwhile McGavin and his team have found dead aliens on the ship, and learn of their previous visits to Earth. Considering how old this is it's a pretty good effort and precursor to Roswell, The X-Files, etc."

"This movie is one of the few sci-fi movies which is still one of the best
movies to come out way back, it still has the interest in the subject of
UFOs, and is a must movie to have in your collection of sci-fi films.
to me Hanger 18 is one of the classic's which has a host of stars,the late
Darren McGavin and another great actor Robert Vaughin, the dvd runs for
Approx.97min. and still is very good value for money.
a must have."
A cult favorite among alien seekers

"This low-budget "B" movie is quite entertaining, with a good cast. Whether you believe in its' premise or not depends a lot on your worldview. This particular DVD version of the film that Amazon is selling is the only legitimate one that I know of. The digital transfer from a video master is decently done. Don't expect mega-budget Hollywood blockbuster picture quality or sound. It was never there to begin with.
Bottom line -- a fun film that makes you think and wonder. Personally, I wouldn't take it too seriously."
